Re: What board games are you playing?

The Thunderbirds Cooperative Board Game is a hell of a lot of fun.  It captures the ambiance of the old puppet TV show very well.  It is also very challenging to play.  Good stuff!

Re: What board games are you playing?

I finally put the CONAN strategy board game through its paces last weekend. Very good! Once you get the main mechanic down, gameplay is pretty smooth. It's definitely a strategy game. I think the "Overlord" (basically, the DM: monsters and bad guys) is at a slight advantage in every scenario so the players really need to strategerize to counteract that. As it should be. Good tactical sense is a must.

Ms. Haversack and I also had a rousing game of Moby-d***; or, The Card Game last weekend. That's a good one.

You know, Melville never had to deal with this level of censorship.

Re: What board games are you playing?

The Monolith Conan board game is the big hit right now. I should be receiving the Stygia expansion this week.
Also playing a lot of Federation Commander. (Streamlined Star Fleet Battles)

I haven't played that yet, but picked up a copy from the publisher just after the KS fulfilled.  I'm glad to hear that it's good!  (Had I moved into acaedmia, I would have done my dissertation on Melville or HPL, and probably the former...).
